Steve’s slight obsession with all charts medical/scientific/anatomical can actually leave me a little creeped out. I mean what the hell is the chart below of? It’s colouring and detail are stunning, the German’s certainly get that right in the 60′s. However I was a little lost as to what it might actually be an illustration of?
At 8.30am every morning our postman arrives. And yes he knows us VERY well! We actually do most of our shopping online these days so we practice what we preach. Between my purchaces and Steve’s product sourcing, our two year old thinks the postman is a constant supplier of goodies.
Look at what arrived this week. A beautiful London Bus Scroll in electric yellow. Available in the shop soon I envy the persons wall that this will adorn.
I’m often taking snaps of new products on Instagram if you’d like to follow us: Empirical Style.
The Melbourne winter is slowly coming to an end. Slowly being the operative word- it’s been a long one!
This winter we headed a few hours flight from Australia to Vanuatu. Travelling with three other families that live in different states we thought the best way to see each other was to have a family friendly holiday together. Eight adults, four kids under four and two in uetero headed to a house right on the beach in the pacific. Thanks to Fil who documented the events so I didn’t even pull out my camera.
We are a big bulb mad here. All kinds of shapes and sizes, warm to cool, modern to vintage. If you are looking for the perfect bulb, I’m pretty certain Steve would be able to find it for you.
The edison bulbs are hugely popular in New York where we first saw them years ago. Here in Australia they are steadily increasing in popularity and are popping up in many a cool bar or restaurant fit out.
Having lived with them for years and in every room when the sun goes down i still never tire of their beautiful golden glow.
We love how Lisa of The Red Thread has used one of our cage lights above her loft bed!
We just added this red cord to this beautiful wooden cage pendant.
We always find it quite funny and lovely when some customers visit our showroom and gush about how much they loved seeing Steve on Top Design. We however are equally excited when famous faces are in our home wanting to look at our Empirical Style wares. Today we were blessed with rock n roll royalty Tex Perkins purchasing the Sundew chart as a present! But now he’s gone ‘and the honeymoon is over baby..’!
